Cannabis For Stress & Anxiety

With a global increase of medical marijuana use to treat health conditions, advocates and studies are showing that medical marijuana can be used to treat anxiety disorders. Advocates believe that the chemical makeup of cannabis can be beneficial in treating anxiety, while others argue that it can actually cause anxiety.

Medical marijuana has been used for centuries to treat depression and other medical conditions. More than 400 years ago, cannabis was used to treat depression in India and has since been studied and analyzed to determine the medical benefits and disadvantages for patients. Today, many states across America have legalized the use of medical marijuana, but usage still remains illegal under U.S. federal law.

When taking a close look at medical studies and results of medical marijuana used to treat anxiety, it’s evident that the chemical makeup, specifically the presence of the chemical compound Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is the main ingredient to treat anxiety. Another compound, tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, can prevent nausea and vomiting in cancer patients, but may have a reverse affect on treatment for anxiety.

Medical marijuana, or medical cannabis, is the use of cannabis and its chemical compounds to treat illnesses, diseases and improve symptoms.

The cannabis plant has historically been used worldwide to treat illness and health conditions. The American Medical Association and other medical organizations strongly oppose its use for medical reasons, but the American Academy of Pediatrics believes that the use of medical cannabinoids, the natural compounds that make up the genetics of medical marijuana, can be a therapy for a number of medical conditions, but do not recommend use until more research is complete.

There are 85 natural compounds in cannabis, known as cannabinoids, which all relieve symptoms of illness by attaching to the receptors in the brain that look for similar compounds that occur naturally in the human body. Strains of medical marijuana are specifically bred to contain particular levels of each compound recommended for different conditions.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the cannabis compound that has found to have significant benefits for treating people with anxiety. CBD-rich cannabis can be treated for patients seeking anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-anxiety and anti-spasm affects. CBD does not make people feel “stoned” or “high,” and can actually counteract the anxiety-driven tendencies of THC. CBD is one 85 natural compounds found in cannabis. It is a major element, making up 40 percent of the plant’s extract and has a wider medical benefit than THC.

The other popular compound to treat medical conditions is tetrahydrocannibinol, or THC, and can be used to relax muscles, reduce inflammation, reduce seizures stimulate appetite, lower blood pressure and is an anti-depressant.

 

Senate Responds Back To Jeff Sessions Which Will End Marijuana Prohibition!

Congress took a step toward easing its stance on medical marijuana on Thursday.

U.S. Sens. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky), Corey Booker (D-New Jersey) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York) introduced a bill that would end the federal prohibition of medical marijuana and take steps to improve research.

The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States, or CARERS, Act would effectively change the Controlled Substances Act, allowing the possession, production and distribution of medical marijuana in states with established marijuana laws.

Jeff Sessions came out yesterday and made an announcement wanting to end the search for Medical Marijuana. Why he is so against it I am not sure. There is probably someone in the background who controls all this who wants them to not end the Medical Marijuana prohibition.

Twenty-nine states, as well as the District of Columbia, have already legalized marijuana, but the CARERS Act would prevent the federal government from prosecuting businesses and individuals in states where medical marijuana is legal, since federally marijuana is still illegal under the Controlled Substances Act.

Yesterday the senate passed a bill increasing sanctions on Russia for interfering with our election and blocked trump from lifting sanctions.

Today they show Sessions what they think of his nonsense.

The Senate has been a green light for Medical Marijuana. It seems as though it is just Jeff Sessions that has the problem with the whole thing. He stated that marijuana is more addicting and harmful than heroin.

Where does he get his facts and information from??

Sessions asked Congress in May to allow the Justice Department to prosecute businesses and individuals in states with medical marijuana laws

Science Kicks Jeff Sessions In The Ass!

Since a few days ago Jeff Sessions, the Attorney General of the United States, had made an announcement that he wanted to crack down on Medical Marijuana. He had stated that there was no proof that Medical Marijuana could help and that it is highly addictive and will cause more damage in the long run.

Amid a drug crisis that kills 91 people in the US each day, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has asked Congress to help roll back protections that have shielded medical marijuana dispensaries from federal prosecutors since 2014, according to a letter made public this week. Those legal controls which bar Sessions’s Justice Department from funding crackdowns on the medical cannabis programs legalized by 29 states and Washington, D.C. jeopardize the DoJ’s ability to combat the country’s “historic drug epidemic” and control dangerous drug traffickers, the attorney general wrote in the letter sent to lawmakers.

The catch, however, is that this epidemic is one of addiction and overdose deaths fueled by opioids—heroin, fentanyl and prescription painkillers—not marijuana. In fact, places where the U.S. has legalized medical marijuana have lower rates of opioid overdose deaths.

A review of the scientific literature indicates marijuana is far less addictive than prescription painkillers. A 2016 survey from University of Michigan researchers, published in the The Journal of Pain, found that chronic pain suffers who used cannabis reported a 64 percent drop in opioid use as well as fewer negative side effects and a better quality of life than they experienced under opioids. In a 2014 study reported in JAMA The Journal of the American Medical Association, the authors found that annual opioid overdose deaths were about 25 percent lower on average in states that allowed medical cannabis compared with those that did not.

And a significant number of pain sufferers would apparently prefer to use medical marijuana instead of prescription painkillers. A study  published in July 2016 in Health Affairs explored what happened to Medicare painkiller prescriptions after states green-lighted medical marijuana laws, and found that a typical physician in a state with medical cannabis prescribed 1,826 fewer painkiller doses for Medicare patients in a given year—because seniors instead turned to medical pot. There were also hundreds fewer doses prescribed for antidepressants, anti-nausea medications and antianxiety drugs.

The Cavaliers’ Locker Room Definitely Smelled Like Weed After Game 2

Yes you read that right LOL

The NBA is almost done its playoffs with Game 4 being tonight between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors. It may look like a 4-0 sweep for the Warriors as they look to perfect there playoff winning ways to 16-0. Something I don’t think has ever been done before.

As you can probably imagine the Cleveland Cavaliers must be under a lot a stress. Being the defending champions and beating the very team they did last year after a 3-1 deficit. I don’t think the same will happen this year as Golden State is looking to strong.

So when you’re the defending NBA Champions and your getting your ass kicked 3-0 in the series I think there’s a part of you that would need to relax and take some stress off.

Whats the best way to do that?? Smoke some weed. After game 2 when the cavaliers got whooped, several reporters had left the locker room saying there was a definite smell of marijuana.

The first reporter who had smelled it was a ESPN rep Mike Wise. Who tweeted about it later and then in another tweet clarified that he didn’t know who or where it came from but that it wasn’t a dead skunk.

“There are two doors to that locker room, said Windhorst. “And there were three times as much media there. There are some questionable media dudes hanging around the Finals, is all I’m going to say. I did smell marijuana but I have no idea where it came from.”

If indeed it was a player (or players, plural) partaking in a post-game toke, Twitter highlighted a potential suspect in the case, which we can neither confirm or deny.

If that’s what it takes to keep your mind relaxed and focused on Game 4, by all means do what you have to do. But as someone who has been in those post-game scrums, there are plenty of suspects in the media who you could point the finger at as well, they’re just a lot lower profile than the guys who are on the court.

The source of Cleveland’s reefer madness will go unknown for now, but at the very least, they’ll have to hope the series doesn’t end in a sweep the next game is tonight in Ohio, where weed is still very much illegal.

Marijuana is the new crop for B.C. produce company Village Farms

A major Canadian producer of greenhouse-grown fruits and vegetables plans to turn at least one of its B.C. greenhouses into an enormous marijuana production facility.

Village Farms, based in Delta, B.C., has announced a joint venture with Emerald Health Therapeutics, the parent company of licensed medical cannabis producer Emerald Health Botanicals, also based in B.C.

Under the terms of the deal announced late Tuesday, Village Farms will provide Emerald with an existing 1.1 million square foot greenhouse in Delta, in exchange for $20 million cash and a 50 per cent stake in the joint venture. If approved and licensed by Health Canada, the greenhouse could yield more than 75,000 kilograms of marijuana per year, the companies say.

Emerald has the option to lease two more greenhouses from Village Farms in the future, for a total of 4.8 million square feet of growing space with an estimated annual yield of 300,000 kilograms. Village Farms CEO Michael DeGiglio said he expects the first greenhouse to converted for cannabis farming by 2018.

Joint ventures are definitely making the production at a lower cost for both parties. Also with major companies like Village Farms and others you can see just how big this industry is really growing.

Marijuana is the future of many things. Farming, economy, production etc. With the amount of jobs it can create in its industry I believe the people that are most against Marijuana will see the value of what it can do.

green3

Licensed producer Aphria, based in Leamington, Ont., also touts its medical marijuana as being greenhouse-grown, with the slogan ‘powered by sunlight.’ Tantalus Labs, a recently licensed company based in Vancouver, is also focusing its business model and marketing efforts on greenhouse growing.

A number of other licensed cannabis producers are already operating greenhouse growing facilities, or building them out for the future, like Aurora Cannabis is doing with an 800,000 square foot in Leduc County, Alberta. ​

DEA chief: ‘Marijuana Is Not Medicine’

Yes, you read the heading right and yes, I was just as mad as you are as I was reading it for the first time.

Drug Enforcement Administration acting Chief Chuck Rosenberg reiterated an Obama-era stance Thursday that “marijuana is not medicine.”

“If it turns out that there is something in smoked marijuana that helps people, that’s awesome,” he said, speaking at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. “I will be the last person to stand in the way of that. … But let’s run it through the Food and Drug Administration process, and let’s stick to the science on it.”

POLICE MARIJUANA

Marijuana is classified as a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substances Act, alongside drugs like heroin and LSD, while other substances like oxycodone and methamphetamine are classified as Schedule II drugs, which are regulated differently. Despite repeated attempts by advocates requesting that marijuana be moved to Schedule II, the DEA has pointed to the FDA’s guidance that says it does not have medical value.

Rosenberg noted that the DEA takes recommendations about how to classify the drug from the FDA. He pointed out that marijuana studies have been ongoing and acknowledged some studies show it may have medical benefits for children with epilepsy.

He also appeared to show some concern around state laws regarding recreational marijuana, saying that it is addictive, which can be harmful to a developing brain that is vulnerable to developing substance abuse and addiction.

“When you develop a substance use disorder at a young age, it actually increases the likelihood of you developing an addiction to other substances,” he said. “So in that sense addiction to marijuana or any substance, including nicotine, during adolescence and young adulthood when the brain is developing is very concerning.”

Whatever happens, after all the research and everything I hope they can see the beauty and the help Marijuana gives to its users.

Marijuana Aims To Take Less Than 1 Percent Of Canadian Alcohol Sales

The recreational marijuana industry is expected to take a sip of less than 1 per cent initially out of annual Canadian alcohol sales once it becomes legal.

A business consulting firm in New York, says the legalization of Marijuana would take $160 million out of the country’s $22.1 billion booze industry, rising as use of the drug expands.

While there are numerous unknowns governing the sale of marijuana, A Business consulting Firm based its projections on alcohol sales in U.S. states that have legalized the drug. It also took into account a lot of factors in Canada including spending patterns, income and demographics.

The beer market, which is worth about $9.2 billion, is anticipated to take a $70-million hit from in the first year of marijuana legalization.

A Deloitte report has estimated that the Canadian market for marijuana could be worth up to around $22.6 billion a year, including about $4.9 billion to $8.7 billion from the sale of the substance, with the rest coming from the ancillary market including growers, testing labs and security.

In a report released last month, Azer said just under 82 per cent of 18- to 29-year-olds in Ontario consumed alcohol in 2015, down 5.5 percentage points since 2008, while marijuana use has been steady at around 34 to 36 per cent.

The introduction of Marijuana being legalized will hopefully divert the public away from booze a little more. The only reason that is a concern to me is the stats that show the affects of living between the two. It is shown that alcohol does way more damage then Weed. There are more deaths caused by alcohol then Marijuana.

Marijuana-Related-Deaths

This was in 2014 from the World Health Organization. Countries in Europe have already seemed to legalize or be less harsh on the laws. Countries like Spain and Portugal have started the trend with more hoping to follow.
